Premier Three Purple 2024

There are twenty-seven contestants for the 2024 Bristol Premier League Division Three season, eight of whom remain in the division from last season, while five were relegated from Premier Two, six are returning to the league after time out and eight are making their Premier League debuts.
Those 27 players have been arranged into three parallel divisions of nine, Premier Three Green, Premier Three Yellow and Premier Three Purple, ordered as per their finishing positions last year, and for the new and returning entrants by a random draw.
In each division players play each other three times in 11-point matches giving a total of twenty-four matches each in both divisions, in a season spanning the eleven months from January to November.
Players arrange their own fixtures, at mutually acceptable venues and times.
